Hello to all

Postby workinprogress » Mon Sep 18, 2006 12:29 pm

Hi everyone,

Just writing this post to introduce myself to everyone. I'm Kristina and I stumbled upon this site a few days ago while researching some diet tips. I was impressed with the high level of support that you all give each other and thought that I would love to be a part of it :D

I'm currently 65kg and my goal weight is 55kg. At the beginning of the year I did weigh 74kg at my highest and to be honest I don't remember losing the weight but I put it down to the stress that I was under because of the break up of a long term relationship.

I've managed to keep it off and I was relatively happy with my size until recently when I bought a new digital camera and had a few pictures taken. Must I say that the camera never lies :cry:

I mainly carry my weight around my upper arms and hip/thigh area and I'm looking to improve this by weightloss. I've chosen the dreaded calorie restrictive diet because I know that it will work for me and it's about time I cut down on my food intake as I know that I eat too much. I'm hoping to lose this weight in about 10-15 weeks once and for all.

Anyway thanks for listening and I look forward to reading your posts.

Hello Kristina and welcome to the forum.

Yep, loads of support here thats for sure and lot of experience with many different plans so don't be afraid to ask any questions you have.

There are plenty of calorie counters on here, myself included, so if you need any tools for calculating etc just sing out.

Well done on your weight loss so far and I wish you all the best on your weight loss journey. :D
